Sebastien Buemi, e.dams, Formula E test, Donington Park, 2014The FIA’s new all-electric single seater series, Formula E, completed its first test session at Donington Park today.

Red Bull test drivers and former Toro Rosso racer Sebastien Buemi set the fastest time for the team run by GP2 and Formula Renault 3.5 squad DAMS.

Buemi is one of 11 former F1 drivers participating in the championship. His lap of 1’35.475 was five seconds off the pace of a Formula 4 car at the circuit.

However a makeshift chicane was installed at one point on the track to slow the cars down. And the Spark-Renault SRT 01E chassis and power unit are still at an early stage in their development.

The first round of the championship will be held on a street circuit in Beijing, China on September 20th.
